Activation Session Development

Getting this right now will mean we know exactly how to prep your body the day before your key events so you are 100% at the start line the next day

Look to include your event warm-up & cool-down plus some high cadence low resistance efforts and about 5-10 minutes at "race" intensity (in this instance think about the hardest you might go during the test tomorrow (very hard!)

Make notes today & tomorrow on how it felt so we can come back to this and develop it over time

Focus on having everything ready for your upcoming event. Allow your mind to be filled with positive thoughts. Repeat mantras, power words or affirmations
